Maybe ableist attitudes, capitalism and education
We were talking about education just now. My wife was saying some of her general education teachers get suspicious of learning accommodations for students with disabilities. She says it levels the playing field. They say well isn't that grade inflation? What about the bell curve? She says why does there have to be one. Like the discussion becomes about the need to sort people into successful and unsuccessful. Good and bad. An easy life or one full of struggles. There's something they find alarming about accommodating everyone so that everyone can learn. It's as if education isn't designed for everyone to be successful, but to make sure everyone gets their "good or bad" designation

relatedly: No two of [IGCs, VGCs, Actual Gender, Assigned Gender at Birth] need agree.
when someone's AG doesn't match their AGAB, we call it being transgender or gender variant.
when someone's VGCs don't match their AG, we call it crossdressing.
When someone's IGCs don't match their AG, we call it unfortunate
lots of reasons can cause a person's IGCs to not match their AGAB, whether they are GNC or not.

A silly instance of Mastodon for queer folk and non-queer folk alike. Let's be friends!
